Pearson bemoans Leicester luck

The Foxes, who are without a win in 13 Premier League matches, put in a spirited display against Tottenham but ultimately it was in vain as the visitors ran out 2-1 winners at the King Power Stadium.

And Pearson, whose side are bottom of the table, wants his team to start making their own luck as they look to get back to winnings ways.

???I???m not sure whether things conspired against us but certainly our players are not the luckiest group at the moment,??? he told Sports.

???In terms of our performance, we???ve seen a very good performance but ultimately you???ve got to be able to produce the goods in both boxes and again we???ve not done that.

???The goal that wins the game probably isn???t fitting to win a game in which we???ve been as committed as we have been,??? he added.

???We???ve caused them an awful lot of problems but we have to find a way of turning that kind of performance into three points. That remains our biggest challenge at the moment.???

Leicester were denied two penalties with Jan Vertonghen???s challenge on Jamie Vardy in the closing stages a particularly contentious decision but Pearson, fresh from a one-game touchline ban, refused to criticise the officials.

The Leicester boss added: ???Having seen it again I thought the one on Vardy was [a penalty].

???But the officials have got a difficult job and they have to give decision that they feel are correct in the moment.

???Unfortunately they still don???t have the luxury of the technology that is readily available and as a manager I have to accept what happens on the field from the officials because they give decisions based on what they see with honourable intentions.

???It???s not for me to be overly critical. I could talk about the fact we???re not getting breaks but that???s how it is and we have just got to get on with it.???
